In Pictures: 15 high-impact Apache projects

From Harmony to Hadoop, Apache has been a powerful contributor to the open source ecosystem


This server runtime integrates open source projects, including Tomcat, MyFaces, and OpenJPA, to produce Java/OSGi server runtimes. The most popular distribution is a Java EE 6 application server runtime.

“Apache Geronimo is a modular, compose-able, open source server runtime,” says Kevan Miller, chair of the Geronimo program management committee. “The next logical major release would be a Java EE 7 [version]. There haven't been any concrete discussions on a Java EE 7 release. We'll need to see more progress on the Java EE 7 specifications before that happens.” The project started in the Apache Incubator in 2003 and graduated as a Top Level Project the following year.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
